    .. revisited vinyl wrapping my door pillars today.. much happier with the result this time.. I used satin black vs the gloss black I tried the first time back in the fall which I then removed. The satin black is a winner.. this was the look I was going for.

    Yeah, but to play Devil's Advocate here, they can't even fix leaking rear windows here as of late. Engine replacement? I would have to get out of it and get another one to ever be happy I think. This just sucks.

    It’s about 1/2 inch narrower, I think If I was parked beside another one, you probably couldn’t even tell.

    So I found nothing wrong with the instructions for the install when installing it. It even says the 6.2 is shown and that the 5.3 is farther back on the drivers side. I found the tightness of the hoses to be perfectly normal and had no problem putting them on. I have installed 3 of these already 2 on 5.3 and 1 on a 6.2. There is even a video showing how to install the can.

    I would but for 2 reasons I can’t, 1,, truck is at the dealer, 2, it was a little hole that goes through the mud flap in to the nut clip, couldn’t see it, had to put my finger up behind the fender to find it, then saw the hole on the mud flap so I took the other bolt out, matched it up with a new bolt, put them both in, problem solved now for 5,000 miles.

    I am an HVACR tech by trade. I can tell you you will be chasing ghost trying to confirm a leak on any auto ac by pulling a vacuum. This is mainly because the compressor front seal is not meant to handle a vacuum. The best practice is to use nitrogen and a leak detector of some sort be it soap bubbles or an electronic leak detector. I use both. You can heat up the refridgerant cans in hot water. In the field we use our torches, but we watch our bottle pressure on our gauges so the cans or jugs wont blow. Automotove standard epa 608 is only zero psi for vacuum while everything else hvac related is 500 microns well beyond -29. Pull your best vacuum 30 to 1hr. Connect your leak detecktor can and let the vacuum pull it in. Once done charge the rest of the way. Max ac full blast windows down. Heat your cans as needed.

    This may sound unbelievable especially since I spent my working life off road. Living in the south, not many pot holes may be a good reason . I’ve never needed an alignment. I would regularly get 70-90K miles out of factory tires. The only exception was when I did a job in Austin Texas. Mesquite trees, thorny little &$&&&. KOs took care of them.

    I know someone who bought a new Toyota Tacoma. First oil change is 10 K miles per dealer. I believe they are all extending services to let you think it's OK. I disagree.

    There is a lot of good points being made in this post. I personally wouldn't purchase any popular late model 1/2 ton with 157K miles unless it was priced ridiculously low. Unless the truck is an older collectable, this kind of mileage doesn't warrant a price tag in the $20K range. You will find everyone thinks this way if you ever try to resell!

    Except that guy almost certainly didn't actually pay anything close to $55k for it. A quick look on cars.com shows a bunch of Suburbans going for 17%+ off sticker price. That drops that 2010 Suburban for $55k down to around $45k, and I'm sure even better deals than that were possible if his timing was just right. For whatever reason the SUVs seem to really get nailed in early depreciation compared to the trucks too. Was definitely part of the reason I went for a truck. The trucks seem to be pretty amazing really in terms of holding value, as far as vehicles go.

    I've been reading GA lemon law. There is a 30 day clause, as well as 3 repair attempts, and a 4th final inspection, I'm guessing to prove the problem still exists. They haven't called me, and I'm not calling them. Clock is ticking. And I'll have the manager inspect it with me when I go to pick it up. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    I don't know? I had no issues really installing it? The connections can be and are tight? Which is good right? My buddy ordered one from the other outfit and they sent him completely wrong hoses and adapters for his vehicle? They did correct the situation but he installed it and the effectiveness of it working properly was.....nothing close to mine? I don't know...mine has caused me absolutely no problems and does what it supposed to?

    Early in the thread someone said the 13 6.2 didn’t have cylinder deactivation. One less worry if that’s a concern and not too long ago. I know people who experience electrical issues and that was mentioned in this thread. I don’t know if I would be as concerned about that. Electrical problems usually shows up early and would be on the car-fax. Where cylinder deactivation problems would usually show up in the 100-150K range. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    They suck ass. Never even got them installed. The shock eyelets were to narrow causing me to have to use 3 big spacers on each side to fill the gap in the shock mount when bolted up. That's a total of 24 washers I needed for both sides just to make them fit right. The sleeves that came with the bushings were to small at 1/2". Our mounting bolts are 5/16". So the hardware wouldn't fit through the shock. When I contacted Bilstein they said they didn't have a bushing that would fit the eye of that shock and accommodate a bigger 5/16" sleeve. I asked about the ones used on the 5160 and the shock eye is bigger than the 5165 therefor it can accommodate our bigger hardware. Ultimately the shocks were rendered useless and I returned them to get my money back. I have no doubt the 5160's are probably great but theyre only good for up to 2" of lift. I needed 7" so I was forced to use the custom 5165. I should have suspected something when I couldn't find one single review of someone using a 5165 on a Silverado or any truck for that matter I have a Rough Country lift so I ended up going with RC's new Vertex reservoir shocks and I couldn't be happier.

    OK, just did about a 400 mile short road trip this weekend and it did change my view on the DFM. It’s hard to do a direct comparison with/without because on the highway the L9 seems to modify shift points in a way that matters and is most likely hurting things. But once I noticed that I just stayed in D and let it do its thing and got an average of 19.5MPG on a trip involving a combo of hilly interstates going mostly 75+, 2 lane (hilly) roads, and a little in town stuff here and there. On the way home I pushed it pretty hard too, climbing some long grades at 80-85mph and generally just not thinking about economy at all, and even in those 25 mile windows on the DIC the average stayed over 18mpg. I’m definitely impressed. I’d love to go do the same trip with DFM disabled and see how it does. And maybe I will buy a Range to do some testing with when they’re all sorted, but for now I’m not worried about it.

    It’s not the point of how much it costs for a certain repair, it’s the fact that something with over 150K Miles will have a great deal of wear on “EVERYTHING” and not something someone on a budget should ever look into purchasing, asking for a lot of added headaches only to say you’ve got a 6.2, run away from it! Btw, dealerships don’t care if it breaks down, it’s just an added return on what they paid for it on trade. Sent from above

    Well, I just heard back from the dealer on the fix for my LTZ. I feel this is the best possible scenario based on what I've seen here. To recap: -This is the 15th day it's been there. -They've done the remove/reseal of the rear spoiler in the TSB. Solved some of the leak but not all. -Headliner doesn't appear to be water damaged(caught it early I guess). -Had a glass company out(Safelite...meh) to inspect the glass. Said they would remove/clean/reseal/reinstall. Safelite advised them that there was a 100% chance the rear window assembly would break if they tried to remove it. My Service Advisor told them not to even try. They are ordering a new rear window assembly and Safelite will install it early next week. He said parts availability don't appear to be a problem. They will remove the old, install the new and then do a thorough leak test. He said keep my loaner til then and don't worry about it. BTW, I did NOT buy the vehicle at this dealer. I know there have been a lot of bad experiences with dealer repairs in this thread. Believe me, it scared the hell out of me. However, this dealer has so far taken good care of me...and even kept my truck inside full time(which I have visually verified). So, I'll advise on how it comes out, but if you're in central TX, you might want to consider a trip to this dealer and Service Advisor. I'll post the details if anyone is interested. Quite possible that on future repairs they will take this route but who knows.

    Actually I’m well aware of how the process works. I just got rid of my duramax. Aside from the ECM it’s a 10 credit unlock. I don’t think I had any false information in my post. You can send yours to them and only pay for the credits if you would rather do it that way. My whole point was that at a 10 credit price the gains compared to the investment are nil.

    I've installed that CXARC knob with mounting tape under my seat. This thingy really helps - no need to mess with switches, so I restored them to factory defaults. GM should've included it in the kit!
